Netflix For Naika

NaikaRedSweaterNaika Toussaint books “Haters Back Off!

Haters Back Off is an upcoming television comedy series starring Colleen Evans, based on her character Miranda Sings, that is slated to debut on Netflix. The series centers around “the oddball family life of Miranda Sings, an incredibly confident, totally untalented star on the rise who continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous – it’s just no one knows it yet.” Evans said that the show will depict Miranda’s origins and evolution on her “road to fame”, with appearances by YouTubers and other people she has met along the way.
The series’ eight episodes are expected to be released simultaneously. The show was developed by Evans and her brother, Christopher Ballinger, together with showrunners Perry Rein and Gigi McCreery. It is being produced by Brightlight Pictures. The show is named for Miranda Sings’ signature catchphrase.

The show will be the first scripted series created by a YouTube personality.

Eric does Comedy!

Eric Bempong books Netflix series “Haters Back Off“.

EricBempongSTORY LINE and Backstory: HATERS BACK OFF delves into the oddball family life of Miranda Sings, an incredibly confident, totally untalented star on the rise who continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous, it’s just no one knows it yet. MIRANDA SINGS is a YouTube star with almost six million subscribers and over a billion views online. The fictional character was created by COLLEEN EVANS in 2007 to poke fun at people trying to get famous on the Internet. Ironically, her videos went viral, especially in the theater community. But now, Miranda is a cultural phenomenon selling out venues all over the world with her one-woman show. The phrase “Haters Back Off” has become Miranda’s rallying cry as she’s known for standing up to her haters. In fact, among the hundreds of video tutorials she’s made, “haters back off” is the only good advice she’s ever given. Adults think she’s an idiot and kids think she’s a hero, but everyone is amused.

miranda-sings-faceHATERS BACK OFF is a single-camera ensemble comedy with small town, quirky characters whose self importance is bigger than their circumstances, a la Napoleon Dynamite and Waiting for Guffman. The comedy comes from the characters and the importance they put on the minutiae of their lives. The focus of the show is on Miranda and the rest of the Sings family. Miranda is a hugely confident 17- year-old who’s got no filter or talent whatsoever. But she’s determined to become famous, regardless of how it wreaks havoc on her family and community. Building off her narcissistic persona on YouTube, HATERS BACK OFF will expand her world, allowing for a deeper exploration of her character. We’ll finally get to see empathy and moments of humanity from Miranda as she interacts with her family and her best friend, Patrick. These characters have been referred to, but never seen on YouTube, so they are eagerly awaited by the current audience. As Miranda’s internet fame grows over the course of the series, she’ll have to deal with the fact that she’ll never win the respect of her hometown. And at some point, she may catch a glimmer of the idea that family and friends are more important than fame… but just a glimmer.
